Underworld: Awakening Trailer: ‘This Is a New War’

Kate Beckinsale is back to her vampiric ways in the fourth Underworld movie, Underworld: Awakening. In this installment, a fictionalized Oliver Sacks treats both vampires and lycans, and they emerge from their catatonia and have to learn to navigate the strange world around them. We kid! It's simply another vampire action movie. U:A follows Selene (Beckinsale) into an era when humans are trying to eradicate both vampires and werewolves. It looks about as thoughtful and intricately plotted as its predecessors, which is to say not very, but hey: shadow-y action and the sounds of knives being unsheathed. It's just an Underworld movie being an Underworld movie. [First Showing]
